become a movement, you can try to change with the government or negotiate with the government. deps on your strategy. start small, focus, build around local nonpolitical issues, which is where you learn the technology of nonviolent struggle. then you achieve a little victory. then the people start joining because the people who join the things which are successful. and if you are branded well and know how to communicate, you have a movement, and then see how the government will deal with it, because the more oppressive government is, the less space for use of the suppression. because they already are using every single way of censorship, and they're, after 30 years, i don't find them very flexible in dealing with the new ways of protesting. the more closed the system, the more oppressive regime, the less flexible. really flexible regimes are not the most -- when you look at the really flexible regimes who learned fast, like the one in venezuela or russia, they're not north koreas them real problem with north korea, once they're there, they're cemented in their own little thing. so w
. national outrage. national outpouring of grief. and ultimately, no change in public policy. colorado has, meanwhile, become this very illuminating lens through which to view what is going on in our country now on this subject because colorado will always be the home of columbine. and colorado will always be the home of aurora. but columbine and aurora were not enough to change anything in colorado when it comes to policy. nothing happened. and that seemed to prove that nothing could happen, even in the face of the worst kind of gun violence. but today in colorado something began to happen, in a big way. and it reflects two changes. the first change it reflects is newtown. each horrible gun massacre we go through as a country feels like it's going to be the one that we go through as a country that will galvanize us to demand some kind of change. it's always impossible to imagine that anything could be worse. and with newtown, maybe this actually is going to be the one that we cannot imagine anything worse. and it really does change us. newtown has happened since. but also, a much more ped

come later and try to change hearts and minds. >> there was an interesting poll that just came out. it was a daily newspaper there. they found 38% believe he is hostile to israel. 14% think he is indifferent. only one-third believe that he is supportive. i wonder what you think is the strategy there? is it sort of like in the united states, if he can't get something through congress he goes directly to the people? >> i think that'll be part of it. the situation in israel sort of represents one of the fundamental miscalculations of the obama presidency, which was that when he came into office he thought, and a lot of his advisers thought, they'd be able to make a dent there by sheer force of will and personality and by being kind of this unifying figure. and, of course, diplomacy is more complicated than that. and the peace process there has been stalled for years. so i think that the reason they're lowering expectations is because they don't expect that much to happen on this trip. i think he is going there more as a box checking exercise than hoping to make any kind of serious str

of that is going to change when gay couples are allowed to do the same. the fact is that throughout the nation's history, gay couples and gay individuals have been paying their taxes, and by paying our taxes, we help support all the legal benefits and protections of marriage. according to the government accountability office, there are over 01100 legal benefits and protections that are given to married couples. we have been subsidizing those throughout the nation's history. yet we are unable to take advantage of those same incentives to marry. that cannot be constitutional. host: let me ask you this. should the court be jumping in at this point? one of the arguments being made by the lawyers for proposition 8, today's oral argument, is that there is a social movement happening. polls are showing more people in favor. let that take place. let states decide what they want to do. is there a role for the supreme court? caller: of course there is. this cannot be accomplished in a piecemeal, state-by-state basis. most of the legal benefits of marriage come from the federal government. but me give yo

(laughs). >> reporter: scola's support actually comes from outside italy. but it doesn't come from the u.s. cardinals who are thought to support new york candidate timothy dolan-- at least to start. then they may switch to o'malley of boston. the traditionalist candidate is supported by the so-called diplomatic cardinals-- the italians based at the vat
